It was only a matter of time before scientists came up with a portable
DNA testing machine that could provide results within 90 minutes such as
the RapidHIT. The gadget has been approved for use in Arizona where it
has been rolled out completely. Back in August 2014, the Richland County
became the first force to use the gadget to identify and thus,
apprehend a suspect for an attempted murder.

The gadget costs $250,000 and has been developed by IntegenX in US and
Key Forensic Services in UK. The gadget requires an input of swabs taken
from the crime scene and then scans it against the national DNA
database to find a match. It is capable of processing 7 swabs
simultaneously. The gadget is scheduled to be used by the Department of
Homeland Security, Department of Defense and Justice Department.
IntegenX says, “The RapidHIT system has successfully produced full
profiles from very diverse samples such as teeth, bottle necks, hat
sweatbands, cigarette butts, clothing, and several touch swabs.” It
device resembles a printer and can be used by anyone, even those without
the technical knowledge.

The time it takes a user to input the swab is about 3 minutes.
Following that, the DNA analysis begins. Results are produced within two
hours by RapidHIT. US Government has plans to test the machine in
refugee camps located in Turkey and Thailand on families that are
looking to take asylum in US. 

As per Chris Miles, Manager of the
Department of Homeland Security’s biometrics program, “We have all these
families that claim they are related, but we don’t have any way to
verify that.” These tests will be voluntary though, however, the
application may be rejected if one refuses to take the test.

Robert Schueren, President and Chief
Executive Officer of IntegenX stated, “The Arizona DPS deployment is a
significant step for US Law Enforcement in preventing crimes with DNA.
Generating real-time search results will provide tremendous safety benefits to
the residents of Arizona.”
